Nicki, Meek Turn Heads At BET Experience + Erykah Badu Talks Same Sex-Marriage
Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill know how to make an entrance.
During the BET Experience Celebrity Basketball Game, the couple brought fans to their feet and the game to a screeching halt when they stepped onto the court.
The couple, who is rumored to be expecting their first child together, were very flirtatious during the game and appeared to be in great spirits. And of course, all eyes were on Nicki as she sat court side to cheer on her rapper boo.
Also making an appearance, Omarion’s baby boy Megaa, who had Chris Brown, Game and even radio host Big Boy eating out the palm of his hand. Turns out, Megaa might have been the good luck charm for O’s team because they were victorious over the green team.
Daniel “Boobie” Gibson told HipHollywood following the on court battle that the team got a great pep talk from Snoop. “He was like we can have fun, but in the end, we don’t want to be the team no taking pictures, not holding the medals.”
During the Experience, held at the Los Angeles Convention Center, fans were also treated to great music, entertainment and discussion panels. Karrueche Tran, Quincy Brown and Brandon T. Jackson discussed their skyrocketing careers in one session. And in another, Janelle Monae and Erica Badu discussed their love for music and natural hair. “I find that our hair can do so much when it’s natural,” Monae explained. “It’s more flexible to me when I can be me.”
Badu added, “It’s a political statement. It’s powerful and I like to keep that as a part of my doctrine .”
Equality also happens to fall under Badu’s doctrine, which is perfectly parallel with the Supreme Court’s recent ruling on the legalization of same sex-marriage nationwide. “I just feel people should love who they want. Express it however they want. I think people can love who they want to love, wherever they want to love them and how they want to love them,” Erykah told us exclusively.
